Aftermath of panic attack?
 
I haven't had panic attacks for a while so i don't remember how it ends (if it even is ending)

i haven't had a panic attack since yesterday afternoon thank god. whenever i feel an attack coming on, i feel like a carry a ball of panic in my stomach and it won't go away. (does anybody else feel that too?) Well i haven't felt that either since last night. So i woke up this morning and i felt no ball of panic in my stomach, but i have this weird feeling. Like my body wants to panic so badly and i'm scared of having another panic attack. Is this normal? I feel so emotional and i can't stop crying. I feel like some sort of zombie until i start crying from frustration. I've been having panic attacks since monday and am going to make an appointment for the doctors if i don't get better. It took over my life once and i don't want it to happen again.

Re: Aftermath of panic attack?
 
For me the symptoms just slowly disappear or at least lessen to a point where I can start thinking again.. but yeah.. I'm usually scared of doing much if anything afterwards incase I have another one, so I carry that fear/fragile feeling around for a while afterwards too.

I hope you feel better soon
